Question about 1985 Ford F150
I've got a 1985 5.0 V8 It won't start 80% of the time there doesn't seem to be any rime or reason as to when it does start and doesn't. As far as I can tell the fuel pumps work. the ignition module has been replaced. Coil is good Distributor is good plugs are good. everything seems to be operating properly. But most of the time it won;t start. When it does it runs fine but when you turn it off and try to restart it sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't. Monday I went to it started it ran it and drove it for half hour then shut it off and it restarted.then let it sit for 1/2 hour and it started again an hour later it would not start. and hasn't started sinceand this is wednesday. the last time it started was the thursday of last week ??????
If it turns over but just won't fire and the timing sounds fine when it does run you might consider your ignition switch. Does it sound like it wants to fire but only just when you let go of the key?
